Close to 100 children searched for 5,000 goody-filled eggs during the Easter Egg Spectacular hosted April 16 by Dove Mountain Lutheran Church at Dove Mountain Park. The highlight of the event, said Pastor Mark Jacobson, was the jelly bean contest, in which people guessed the number of candies in a jar.

In addition to fun activities, the event also collected food to donate to the Marana Food Bank.
